Not sure if you have the right to make that claim.Table updated to include the 3.8m Prodelin dish from forum member "dreadnutz"
Shocking state of affairs in the UK, not a single representative in the table with a big dish in service. A sad reflection on what was once was a thriving hobby in the UK, now in tatters as the rest of the world looks skwyards.
Not sure if you have the right to make that claim.
There are plenty of owners of larger dishes out there that may not have subscribed to this forum, or are just keeping quiet (planning permission reasons or just inconsiderate neighbours).
You can add my Unimesh - modified, 12' dish to the chart if you wish. Certainly not standard and it is currently locked on 24.4 West, it does get signal but I am awaiting the last of the fauna to vacate the garden this Autumn before removing a tree that gets in the way of the Easterly movement.
What systems you got then.
It will come down at some point to make way for the 3.8 offset.
Have you checked with Alpi (Rhodes) with his Prodelin 3.7m steerable ?
Yes, but the Unimesh install is current and functional (of sorts), Alpi has also made a couple of changes to his Prodelin, plus he has an existing 2.4m on site that acts as a respectable backup.That post you linked to is 17 years old, I was trying to maintain a more current table of dishes owned by forum members. I will update the table with your dishes at some point in the future when you have finalised your installations.
If you are referring to the dish residing in Rhodes owned by forum member "3virgul14" it is in the table.
